TOURS of Stamford Corn Exchange are being offered on Saturday as part of the venue's open day.The first tour will start at 11am, with additional tours every half an hour up until 2pm, there will then be an hour gap, before tours at 3pm, 3.30pm and 4pm.

The bar and tea shop area will be open throughout the day.

The newly built dressing room area will be on show and the new stain glass windows can be seen from the bar area.

Theatre manager Judith Mackie, said: "So many people come into the reception area asking to look round the theatre, which we can't always do throughout the week for individuals, we are hoping to attract many people tomorrow as the interest in the project just grows and grows.

"We have had tremendous success with our new diverse entertainment programme throughout the last year.

"We are attracting people from far and wide now we have big name artists performing at our theatre.

"The autumn programme is very exciting with Elkie Brooks, Beverley Craven, Journey South and many more hot shows coming to Stamford in the next few months."

Only last week, the venue took on another cancelled show from a closing theatre in the north, The Vienna Festival Ballet Company with their production of the Nutcracker.

Judith added: "We are adding an extension to the stage to accommodate this show, as yet again it is unusual for such a highly sought after show to perform in such a small theatre.

"I am delighted to take on this show because we have a strong following of ballet in this area due to such fine dance schools, it all adds to us providing something for all tastes."

Tickets for all shows are available from www.stamfordcornexchange.co.uk or by calling 01780 766455.
